Daffodils are looking good  this afternoon nodding in the wind

I received this lovely hydrangea for Mother's day and was wondering when it would be safe to plant it out as it is already in bloom?


Should I soak these first

Thank you all

Do I need to soak theses Liatris bulbs before planting? Also can I plant straight out in the ground or should I plant in pots in the greenhouse first?


Dug up roses

They have been left unmolested overnight so hopefully that's that.

It's obviously potent stuff as one of my dogs is a real menace when I'm using it to plant something, getting his snout in the hole and the container. The other one likes to sniff all around where I keep it in a jar in the greenhouse

I have replanted them without bonemeal so fingers crossed.......

Hello from Canada

Hi John. Welcome! I am in the east midlands and relatively new to gardening (this will be my 2nd full season) and we had a dusting of snow a couple of weeks ago but that's all. Greenhouse is fit to bust with overwintered plants and potted on seedlings and cuttings and I've run out of windowsills for seeds. I'm hoping the frosts will be gone soon so that I can plant out my perennials and get more seeds on the go

Today I discovered 2 climbing roses that I planted a couple of weeks ago have been dug up leaving a hole were each where.

Last night (around 3 am) my dogs wanted to go out and spent about 10 mins over that side of the garden sniffing with some vigour. One dog then decided to keep barking at the window for an hour or more on and off.

Each hole is perfectly round and there was a little black, shiny fruity smelling pooh next to each hole.

I think it must have been the fox that we've seen in and around the garden recently. Must have been after the bonemeal that I'd sprinkled in the hole when planting.

I've replanted the roses but don't know now which was which ( one red one yellow)

Hopefully they won't come back for another go!

Does the same apply to ground elder?

Thanks. I'll leave them to their own devices then
